Using Asteroids in Human Design


Discover the personal mythology hidden in your Human Design

Many people are interested to know what's beyond the standard Human Design chart.  We know how precise Human Design can be.  Asteroids add even more precision.  They are an astonishing tool for understanding the underlying stories of our lives.

People are often amazed at how closely their lives have followed the mythical versions of the main asteroids in their design.  Someone who has the divine consort Juno in the same Gate as her Sun is going to experience life very differently from someone with a strong Vesta activation because Vesta is much more interested in career than marriage.

Pandora, Isis, Psyche, Juno, Kassandra, Ophelia, Vesta … the list goes on and on! Here is a rich vein of understanding of the feminine self that just isn’t present in the standard chart.  On the masculine side we have Toro, Eros, Hidalgo and even Rumpelstiltskin!  Toro is a very important asteroid for both men and women.  It shows the most effective pathway for us to use our personal power.

When we learn how to use the Asteroids in our Human Design we completely shift the way we relate to our chart.  We discover less fixed concepts of self.  Asteroids can impact our Type, Strategy and Authority.  They can activate undefined Centres and bridge Definition.

The standard Human Design chart is always our starting and ending point in analysis, but without the Asteroids we miss a whole world of meaning that will continue to operate unconciously in our lives.


I look forward to each class. I have taken courses with other Human Design teachers, but was frustrated that they stayed on the surface of things. Kim is not afraid to teach from the deep end of the pool! Though she explains concepts in a simple understandable way, there is a LOT of information in each class that I will be able to keep working with ("playing!") for a long time to come. Kim takes her students very personally into the depths of HD and invites exploration into their own design. 


If you are happy with the standard Human Design chart analysis this PlayGroup is not for you.  But if you are someone who has a passion for diving more deeply into understanding yourself, and wants to learn new Emergent Human Design skills you will get so much out of exploring your Asteroids in this PlayGroup.  I designed the Asteroids PlayGroup for those wanting to understand their underlying personal mythology through the lens of Human Design.


 I find it so enriching to hear other's perspectives on the subject material, the celebrity charts we view, as well as the charts of those in the class and my own. The multiple perspectives bring so much to the table and help me understand not only my own unique perspective, but how others may see or experience my energy, as well as their own energy/activations.  I LOVE active discussions in our web sessions, I learn so much from them and enjoy the exchanges even if I'm not actively participating in one. I also love how organically things tend to evolve as we learn, the flexible space you hold that allows for open feedback, even mid-session. It makes things more approachable and strips away the fear of "is this worth saying/maybe I shouldn't say it, I might get something wrong" that I find is a big barrier to learning, especially in this format. So thank you for that!


Over 4 weeks you will:

  1. Learn how to find the asteroids in your Human Design
  2. The different quality of Minor Planets, including Centaurs like Chiron and Asteroids
  3. Discover which Asteroids are most significant in your personal design
  4. We will also explore:
  • Psyche and Eros - passionate desire, erotic love and psychic connection
  • Ceres, Pluto and Persephone - the cycles of life, mastering the Underworld
  • Hylonome and Cyllarus -  the lost masculine and grieving feminine, recovering our balance
  • Kassandra, Pandora, Ophelia and Vesta - the "invisibles" and the gifts they long to share

Each week you will:

  • learn new Emergent Human Design techniques
  • discover an important archetypal theme and how it is playing out in your life
  • receive experiments and activities to make the learning practical.
  • get a suggested reading and resources list to help you learn more about each specific Asteroid and what it means in the chart.


 I am thinking about HD on a daily basis, and have been able to talk and share more about it with friends. It has been great to be able to connect with other students through conversations in the class forum, if only to gather more information about how others are experiencing their different designs and transitions.  I've been feeling it's relevance every day.  


What’s a PlayGroup?

PlayGroups consist of a weekly live class which is held online in the Learning Hub.  It’s a video class, like a group Skype session, so we can see each other and chat. You’ll get a video recording of each class to keep.  Then there’s the forum, where you get to continue discussing the material with other participants between classes, go into more detail and get feedback.

It makes things more approachable and strips away the fear of “is this worth saying/maybe I shouldn’t say it, I might get something wrong” that I find is a big barrier to learning, especially in this format. So thank you for that!



This is a 4 week online class.  Each live class goes for 2 hours.  As part of your registration, you will receive a full video and mp3 recording of each class.  The first class is on:

  • US:  Wednesday 9th October at PDT 3.00pm, EDT 6.00pm.

The classes operate like a group skype session, and have integrated audio. It's best to use a headset and mic if you have a desktop computer.  Laptops are generally great, and you can also connect via an app from your phone or tablet.   There is no additional connection cost to you, no call costs, etc.  You can find simple instructions for logging in and using the virtual classroom here:
